Why do people insist that Exeggute is a bunch of seeds, and not eggs?

Its name in all languages all involve eggs. It is the Egg Pokemon. It looks like a bunch of eggs, complete with cracks and egg whites spilling out. And yet there are people who insist that they are seeds.

It's both, really.

But it's the same reason why people say Poliwrath isn't a frog, and that reason is because they're not very smart.

Because Eggs are the Seeds of our future

It's listed as an Egg Pokemon. It's eggs, I've never seen anyone call them seeds.

Poliwrath is not a frog. It is a Tadpole Pokemon. It says so in the Pokedex..

Maybe because they evolve into a tree, and not into some kind of bird. But like FuneralCake said, they're seeds that look like eggs. Or eggs that are seeds... lol

Because eggs don't grow into trees which sprout more eggs. Seeds do.
But really, they're both, because Pokemon is trippy.

Remoras don't turn into Octopodes, either. Nor do Clams turn into Eels and Pipefish.

It evolves into a coconut tree, and the Pokedex says that it's biologically more similar to plant seeds than eggs.

FireRed: Even though it appears to be eggs of some sort, it was discovered to be a life-form more like plant seeds.

Its design is based on eggs though.

It's both.

Well, those don't have biological explanations as easy to think of. If they did, people would be saying them just as much.

But Pokemon aren't real. They are designed by the game creators. Seeing as exeggcute is grass type (which fits for seeds, not eggs) and how it evolves into a tree, it's obvious that the designer was thinking of both eggs AND seeds.

What a Pokemon is, is determined by the designer's intention in creating it. NOT real-world biology and taxonomy.
